Geo-locked websites and service.

FFS.

I just had to created a 3rd GMail/Google account to access apps that are
locked to the US.

Stop it.

Why do you need a different mail ID?

Normally this sort of thing is fixed with a VPN.

Neat trick I learned recently:

fred.bloogs@gmail.com is the same as fred.bloggs+I_gave_this_address_to_s... _X@gmail.com

You can now see who is leaking your data....and it shows up (to everyone other than google) as a different address.

Google associates your account with the country you set it up from.

Have yet to find a way how to change that.

Amazon is also getting tricksy Had major issues recently trying
to renew a music subscription with them,

I've ended up setting up multiple accounts for .uk .fr and .com
as my original account got too confused as to where I am and
from which site I'm allowed to access digital content.

Those however all point to different aliases of the same email address.

For what it's worth Tata, a lot (roughly half) of the YouTube links you post are unavailable for my viewing due to geo-restrictions. (For example that last one you posted on the Trump thread.)

I'm not telling you this to feel sorry for me or to make an effort to take into account my viewing capability. I just thought it was worth pointing out that you likely have more and easier access to American content than I do.
